Rails is driving me mad, part 1

In django, if a robot is spidering through your site and hitting non-existent links, you can suppress the email warnings about 404s with a simple configuration change, as explained here.

So how does one do this in Rails?

After a half-hour of fruitless searching I stumbled across this blog post and this piece of software.  The software does a lot more than I want, in particular it takes over the exception notification mechanism.  So I followed the instructions in the blog post, copy-pasting the code into my app, and so far it seems to be working OK.

This is not the magical experience I was promised!
